Unit 3: The Web-Quest


A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which most or all the information that learners work with comes from the web. These can be created using various programs, including a simple word processing document that includes links to websites.[1]

In this unit, participants will navigate and complete a pre-made web-quest and use it as a guide to create their own.

  • Use the discussion tab to interact with other participants taking the course to identify issues, things that work well and even peer assessments of projects.
